Pulled Pork Menehune Sliders

Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 6 to 10 hours
Serves: 12

1 teaspoon Chili powder

½ teaspoon Pepper

1 teaspoon Salt

½ teaspoon Garlic powder

2-3 pounds Pork shoulder or pork butt

1 12-oz can Root beer

1 15-oz Bottle KING'S HAWAIIAN® Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce

12 KING'S HAWAIIAN® Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls

6 slices Monterey jack cheese, quartered

½ cup Shredded carrots

½ cup Red bell pepper, julienned

24 Blue cereal loops

6 medium Black olives, quartered

12 Red sweet baby peppers

Step 1
Combine chili powder, pepper, salt and garlic powder in a small mixing bowl. Rub the spice mixture all over the pork and place the meat in the slow cooker.
Step 2
Pour the root beer over the pork and cook until tender, about 6 to 8 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low.
Step 3
Using 2 forks, shred the pork into bite-sized pieces on a cutting board. Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker and add the KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce. Mix the sauce and meat together.
Step 4
Slice KING’S HAWAIIAN dinner rolls in half; separate top half from bottom half.
Step 5
Spoon a portion of the BBQ pulled pork onto bottom half of each roll.
Step 6
Use a quarter slice of cheese to create teeth for each slider. Place teeth on top of the pulled pork.
Step 7
Slice an inch-long slit across the top half of each roll to place “hair” into. Place on top off the pulled pork, creating a slider.
Step 8
For hair: Gently arrange shredded carrots and julienned bell pepper into the prepared slit across the top of the roll.
Step 9
For eyes: Use a quarter slice of cheese to create 2 eye shapes for each slider. Use 2 toothpicks to attach cheese. Then place a blue cereal loop and olive quarter onto each toothpick.
Step 10
For nose, eyebrows and ears: For each slider, cut the tip of a baby pepper as the nose. Divide the remaining pepper in half. Cut one portion lengthwise to create ears and cut the other portion into 2 rectangles for eyebrows. Gently place each onto the slider. If necessary, use toothpicks to secure.
